COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first beer to come out of our vats, back in 1985, making it the classic beer of Brouwerij ‘t IJ. It is a ‘tripel’, the category reserved for the stronger, blonde beers in Belgian tradition. Zatte more than lives up to expectations in this respect. It is a full-bodied, golden beer with a scent of fresh fruit mingled here and there with a hint of grain. The flavour is slightly sweet, ending with a fine, dry aftertaste. A delicious beer that can be enjoyed in all seasons.

Bottle. Vibrant cloudy golden beer with a very strong head. The aroma is grassy, herbal and spiced. The flavour is warming, yeasty and bitterish spiced. Overall a nice tasting mildly spiced beer.

FatPhil (16401) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Opens with a slowly moving foam snake. Rich orange, hazy, healthy tight head. More yeast darkens it significantly, and makes it basically turbid. Salty sour aroma, almost sweaty and crotchy. Initial taste has that too, but decent malty body too. Sweet and slightly spicy, but dominated by the crotch that builds up as it warms. Plenty of hops in the finish too - hallertau or similar detected, I’m sure. More yeast softens the aroma, making it less crotchy, and likewise the taste. Still a little acidic in the finish. I’m not sure this beer knows what it wants to be, it’s not an abbey tripel with the sourness we had, more like an ubersaison - spoilt bottle?

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 29, 2008
Nice hazy golden body with a creamy head. Aroma of coriander, ginger and malt. Taste was apple, toffee, cinnamon, fine hops. That was delicious too!!!

heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Deep gold body with a lightly off white head. The massive aroma was sweet with ginger and leather. There was also some nice caramel. The taste was sweet caramel apples with some strogn ginger and cinnamon coming through in the finish. Solid.

chilangoglobal (105) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 9, 2008
Excelent aroma, mixture of malts and wood. colour of honey witha subtle head of an tiny orange foam. Flavour is an experience of citrus and strong hops, creamy body. Strong flavor but not noticeable alcohol on it. Delicious!!!
